Is it too Type A of me to be jealous that another mom’s baby got into a preschool and my son didn’t. Well it’s not exactly that he didn’t get in, we hadn’t formally applied yet. But who knew acceptance letters start going out before they are even a year old.
I guess some schools start Parent/Toddler programs at 18 months. Pre-school doesn’t really start until they are 2 1/2 years old, but here’s the problem. If your not in the Parent/Toddler program, you may not get into the pre-school and get waitlisted for who knows how long.
I heard the stories when I was pregnant. Moms saying,” You should get on a waitlist for pre-schools, before it’s too late.” I’m thinking, let me figure the birth part first, then I’ll think about school. Now that my son is almost a year…I’m starting to think about pre-schools, but for some that’s too late. Good thing for all moms is that not every pre-school requires such an early start. Some won’t even give you a tour or consider you until you are 18 months to 2 years old. So I guess there’s still time.
But it’s tough not getting an acceptance letter to your schools of choice. What is this senior year in high school again?
So I better get on my research. Here’s a site that’s helpful. You just put in your zip code and it gives you an overview of preschools in your area with reviews.
